From the FAQ:

Has anyone gotten linux to run with an Ultrastor Ultra 12F ESDI
controller?

Hi, all. I was having trouble compiling ps after applying Linus' and
H.J.'s patches to the .95a kernel. Turned out I hadn't rooted out all
traces of gcc-1.40 --- that part of the FAQ is to be taken very seriously!
Here's H.J.'s message:

        __ctype is from the header files of gcc 1.40. Please backup and remove
        any files related to the previous compilers before you install gcc 2.1.
        There is no __ctype anywhere in the header files for gcc 2.1.

        BTW, they are in my FAQ. PLEASE READ IT WORD BY WORD AND FOLLOW THE
        INSTRUCTIONS.

        Could you please forward my msg to news groups?

        H.J.

Thanks for your help, H.J. -- the fault was entirely mine.

For those who are installing 2.1 for the first time, "Remove all other
compilers" means "rm +recursive /usr/include /usr/lib /usr/local/lib
(and anything else that looks suspicious)."  Took me a while to catch
on to that :)

However the __ctype that ps manages to find is the one that comes with
linux kernel sources.  

ps needs a lot of include files from the system, to be able to
read kmem and so forth. However, ctype is also in the kernel
include directory, while the intended ctype is in the /usr/include
directory.

I changed
#include <ctype.h>
to
#include "/usr/include/ctype.h"
and all managed to compile.

It still crashes though.....

1. Ultrastor 12f ESDI - does it work?

Hello,

   I am considering installing linux on my machine, but am unsure
about my hard disk controller.  I have an ultrastore 12f.  Has anybody
used this?  How finnicky is linux about such matters?

Please respond by email.

THanks
